For this Duty Daily, The Duty of Design would like to reflect upon the immensely honored and treasured leader Nelson Mandela, affectionately known as Madiba. We hope you find inspiration to act, forgive, persevere and learn just as Madiba had done.
Nelson Mandela, South Africa’s Liberator as Prisoner and President, Dies at 95
[Bill Keller from The New York Times]
The question most often asked about Mr. Mandela was how, after whites had systematically humiliated his people, tortured and murdered many of his friends, and cast him into prison for 27 years, he could be so evidently free of spite…after such barbarous torment, how do you keep hatred in check? — his answer was almost dismissive: Hating clouds the mind. It gets in the way of strategy. Leaders cannot afford to hate.
